Users can access log files using operating system commands and functions and also using Database Studio or Database Manager CLI.


Restricting Access for Operating System Commands and Functions

On Unix and Linux, unprivileged operating system users cannot access log files; only members of the special operating system user group <sdba_group> can do so.

Restricting Access using Database Manager CLI

Withdraw the server authorization for reading database files from all DBM operators that should not have access to log files.

In Database Manager CLI, withdraw the DBFileRead server authorization.
